True. But speaking as a lifelong (and generations long family legacy) Husker fan, there are no fans we respect more than those of the Sooners. They truly are a class program, fans included.
This is not Colorado we're talking about. When Sooner fans boo, it just means they favor the other team. Not that they're about to toss beer bottles at the opposition (and we have enough experience with the other kind to tell the difference).
Oklahoma versus Nebraska is (in my obviously biased) opinion the cleanest and purest example of sportsmanship and competition on earth. Which is exactly why you see Oklahoma fans bemoaning an inferior Nebraska opponent where most other opponents would be relishing and gloating. Nebraska fans were doing the same before Bob Stoops came to Oklahoma. It just doesn't feel right when either one is an easy win.
And, despite what seems like the norm, we really do tend to root for each other when playing for the title. It's not entirely selfless. It makes us look better when we beat the other one next year. And (in normal years) that is always the main goal.
So this year ... go Sooners!
He has to remember another item about the game -- Callahan hired John Blake and Bill Young and I know the people around me boo'd when they saw Blake -- he is not very well liked here in Norman after some of his comments not to mention the horrible three years as head coach. He may be a good defensive coach but he was a louzy head coach and Bill Young's job with our non-quarterbacks (at least that is how they looked after he got done with them) was terrible.
There was also an incident before the game when one of the Nebraska lineman headbutted a Ruffneck knocking out two teeth and sending him into the brick wall. The kid had to be carted off on a stretcher and the student section saw the whole thing. That was probably another reason for the booing from the student section. It wasn't loud and in fact, we didn't know what had happened to the Ruffneck until this morning when we read the paper. My daughter and I saw him being taken out on the stretcher with blood all over him.
Now if it was Oklahoma State, the boos were be very loud and vice versa. Nebraska I have had the greatest respect for and will be glad when you guys are back up again and the North has some good teams. I would much rather play a really good Nebraska team then the one Callahan had on the field last night. That was not Nebraska that I know.
